My bash truck has the TrakPower's also............... During racing, I cant take out anymore then 2100 mah, I have done 2 heats on one charge and it still was at 6.7 volts, with probably 3 warm up laps...


And thats Scotty right?

The question was asked which lipo's fit into the cyclone. People have stated which packs fit into the car.

No real names....Dog the bounty hunter is after me....LOL That could be me looking at the cyclone Things out here are fine. I have been taking a break here and there but plan on picking up my racing again this season. The hot bodies car looks pretty killer so I want to give it a shot. It was this or the 416 for the 08 season.

looking to trade my xray t2 '007 US for a andy moore cyclone. Is there car any good with 2 ball diffs on carpet? Where do you guys buy parts online? Ive seen a limited selection from stormer and tower.

eBay has a great set of aluminum purple parts for it for cheap!

For 540 silver can can go with the setup which everyone normally uses.
http://www.hbeurope.com/pdfs/setup_A...ore_worlds.pdf

Except use a ball diff or one-way upfront, and change the rear toe in to as low as possible so that it still handles. Typically i would put a 2 degree block in the rear.

Personally from feedback ive seen around the Cyclone is not as good on carpet as it is on ashphalt.
I ve heard rumours that there is a new cyclone which may be more suited to carpet. I think there are also after-market BMI chassis's which are stiffer and more suited to carpet.

Online a lot of people use rc-champ (japan) is probably the cheapest, but often out of stock of parts and they dont have an online store which you can check to see what is in stock.
www.rcmarket.com.hk (HK) usually has good stock of cyclone parts at good prices and their online store shows their stock levels.

I think the TC 5 is meant to be good, but ive heard you have to hop up the standard kit a bit, and im not sure if they still have all the go-fast parts which people want.
